About The Cave: A Folk Opera

In a Victorian opium den, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father’s debt by working as a prostitute in an occult society called "The Cave." In this musical exploration of fairy tales, sacrifice, and spiritualism, Willow fights to find light not only in the grim and strange shadow-world around her, but also within herself.

The Cave: A Folk Opera” is an award winning musical theatre piece inspired by the classic “Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale and told entirely through original folk music. Blending concert-style performances with shadow puppets and lyrical choreography, “The Cave: A Folk Opera” is sexy, enchanting, and examines how far we go for the people we love. This dark interpretation of a beloved tale is not your childhood “Beauty

and the Beast.”
